"Advice to Grow by... Ask us!" 
Hotline: (858) 822-6910 
This ever-popular event is Sat., Sept. 18 and will feature 15 Carlsbad gardens, including a community garden, and the Master Gardener Demo Garden at the Flower Fields.

If you live inland, you might get in one more round of summer veggies, and if you live on the coast, you can start your fall veggie seeds.
